The opening sentence for the February 12th, Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner: “……. For the thousandth time, I promise you, it wasn’t me!”
Fido had that look about him. We’d seen it before. The last time we came home and realised we had left him inside.
The lounge was a lounge only in name now.
He had ripped open the fabric and dragged the stuffing around the room.
Roger looked at me and I at him.
Fido looked at both us in the most innocent of ways. It clearly was someone else’s’ fault.
I was shaken by the sight and sank to my knees just as Fido delivered a large sloppy lick to my face.
In complete exasperation I reached out and cradled Fido in my arms softly scolding him for the damage he had caused.
This was to be his last hurrah. Tomorrow morning we had an appointment at the vets.
Change awaited Fido who after tomorrow would see lounges as somewhere to sit and sleep. All things boy related would become a vague, distant and confusing memory.

Excellent take on the prompt and perspective of the narrator. Poor pup! 😉
Thank you my friend, yes Fido is in for some change…
As the possessor of male genitalia, I always cringe a bit at the thought of dogs making this trip to the vet. On the other hand, furniture gets expensive. Sorry buddy.
Thank you yes we males can so easily get watery eyes thinking of such things….
A trip to the vet will prevent you finding mini Fido’s! (Save on furniture too!)
True Angie, a positive I would think…
Awww, don’t take Fido’s man card! Funny story.
I think your call comes too late Jenn, Fido will not remember a thing….
Hahaha! Poor Fido is going to get neutered. Poor guy! He’ll thank them later when he doesn’t have all those puppies to try and support. 😀 Cute story!
Thank you Joy, I guess every dog has its day….
Yes, true. And it appears his “days” are over. 😀
Sadly so 🐶🐶🐶
Poor little guy. Great story.
Thank you so much, have a good day.
Fido is in trouble but he’ll grow out of it! Delightful story!
He may not get the chance…..lol thanks for stopping by…
Sounds like he’ll need obedience training too, besides the neutering. Good story. 🙂
Thank you Susan, I tend to agree about the obedience training…
Say it isn’t soooo!
He is looking guilty to me…
He does look guilty!
Afraid so Roger..
